    Many times i hear Americans call football soccer, yet during the world cup tournaments you will always hear everyone say football. what really is the difference between the two. I see the same rules and the game is played in the same way. What qualifies it as soccer...

    As far as I'm aware, they're the same thing. Soccer is what Americans call football. Americans have a different sport that they refer to as football, so they renamed football to soccer in order to differentiate.
    It doesn't really make sense to me, either, and I'm an American.
